North Platte Man Pleads No Contest to Sexually Assaulting a Child

Donald Warfield

A 70-year-old convicted sex offender has pleaded no contest to a new charge of child sexual assault.

Donald Warfield, of North Platte, entered the plea Monday in Lincoln County District Court.

Police say a 15-year-old girl told investigators last year that Warfield began touching her inappropriately when she was 7 years old. She said the incidents continued for three or four years after that.

Warfield registered as a sex offender after being convicted of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old in 2002. In addition, he was arrested last year for failing to properly register as a sex offender. He later pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count and was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Warfield is set to be sentenced on May 20.
